What is Discrimination?

Discrimination is different treatment because of a person’s age, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, familial status, and status with regard to public assistance.

Discrimination or harassment can take many forms, such as:

• Failure to hire, promote, or offer training

• Pre-employment questions that determine who is hired

• Unrelated job requirements that exclude people of a certain age, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, familial status more than others

• Racial or ethnic slurs or derogatory comments that create a discriminatory workplace

• Work assignments based on certain protected classes

• “English only” language rules and requirements in the workplace

When must I pursue my claim?

Federal and state laws which prohibit discrimination have different time limitations in which you must pursue your claims or forever lose your right to do so.
